KeyChest has started as an easy to use HTTPS monitoring service. What we are aiming for is a general purpose key management service, which can look after your public as well as internal web encryption keys.
Some time ago, we decided to run KeyChest on a database cluster. Once we actually did it, I started doubting wisdom of this decision and it took a few months to get beyond the stability of a single-node MySQL database.
KeyChest and another 19 of the Brightest Stars of UK Cyber Innovation will compete for the title of the UK’s Most Innovative Small Cyber Security Company and one of 14 exhibition stands at the DCMS Innovation Zone at Infosecurity Europe.
KeyChest is being integrated with Let’s Encrypt more tightly, it now has its first integration hook for Certbot. It registers domains using self-registered API keys and creates dormant accounts for you simply to confirm.
I have looked into this some time ago, when I researched the global market of web encryption. I used market research reports and arrived to the number of 80%. This time, I had a look at the data from KeyChest monitoring.
I wanted to try it for a while – a crowdfunding campaign. The most important challenge for me was to write a story that would be easy to understand and sufficiently interesting for people investing in crowd funding projects.
